Um, I missed a curve here: I know what linux-next is, and I know what
staging is (although I'm a bit confused about how those two relate), but
what's tip? (Do you mean linux's tree?)

I checked applying-patches.txt and HOWTO in case I missed something, and
both are are hideously stale. (For one thing, both still say 2.6
everywhere. I guess this is my problem now, I'll try a fixup pass this

In the meantime: what do you mean by tip?

GNU/Linux isn't: Linux=GPLv2, GNU=GPLv3+, they can't share code.
Either it's "mere aggregation", or a license violation. Pick one.
